Fuel Altereds - Gone But Not Forgotten
Pictures and movies that I took of some Fuel Altereds back in the '60s. The
most evil handling cars known to man, the fuel altereds were banned by NHRA
over 30 years ago. I was fortunate to get to see and photograph these
beasts in action. If you are interested in the history of these legendary
vehicles, check out these websites. They have hundreds of pictures (much
better than mine) and stories of these brave men and their machines.
For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you
like it! Thanks for watching!
